Today, operators of the continental European power systems, ENTSO-E, announced the successful completion of synchronization with Ukraine's "Ukrenergo" and a significant increase in export capacities from continental Europe to Ukraine. This marks the transition of Ukraine from a temporary regime to permanent synchronization, as stated in the ENTSO-E press release.

According to the announcement, the Ukrainian system operator "Ukrenergo" has met the key technical requirements necessary to ensure continuous connection between the power systems of Europe and Ukraine.

In addition to the transition to permanent synchronization, ENTSO-E has decided to increase the power limit for electricity trading between Europe, Ukraine, and Moldova to 1700 MW. This exceeds the previous limit by 500 MW.

"We highly appreciate today's decision, and I am confident that this achievement will significantly enhance the flexibility and reliability of our power system and create conditions for expanding cooperation. This is the result of years of persistent work, which became particularly challenging after the onset of the full-scale war. We are grateful to ENTSO-E for their continuous support and trust throughout this process," stated Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, the head of "Ukrenergo."

ENTSO-E reminded that the synchronization process with "Ukrenergo" began in 2017 with the signing of an agreement on the conditions of future system unification. In March 2022, an emergency synchronization took place as a sign of Europe's solidarity with Ukraine.

"ENTSO-E welcomes the new level of cooperation between continental European TSOs (Transmission System Operators) and 'Ukrenergo.' This development not only strengthens regional energy security but also contributes to the creation of a more integrated and efficient energy market. It also underscores our ongoing efforts to ensure a stable and integrated power grid and promote collaboration among European TSOs," said Zbyněk Boldiš, the President of ENTSO-E.

It is worth noting that ENTSO-E brings together 39 operators from 35 countries responsible for the safe and coordinated operation of the European power system—the largest interconnected electrical network in the world.

Earlier, The Gaze reported that the German government allocated a credit of 24 million euros to Ukraine for strengthening the energy system, with an additional 500,000 euros provided as a grant.
